It’s not much compared to stealing decades of their time
, but it ought to be a law – and I don’t say that lightly because that is one of the most dangerous phrases in English – requiring a minimum of what they might have earned over those years in compensation. At current pay and/or with accrued interest. And the pension that would go with it
, if they were in a position that pays one. Mistakes are bad enough, but to coach a kid and rely on that bogus testimony to wrongfully convict… well, there are some cops who belong in jail, if not the prosecutor in this case.
